CMAT Score Vs Percentile

CMAT 2021 Application Begins : November 2020

CMAT Score Vs Percentile

The Common Management Admission Test (CMAT) 2020 is scheduled to take place on 28th January 2020 to decide the fate of thousands of candidates aspiring for admission to over 1000 business schools across the country. The results of CMAT 2020 is expected to be announced on 7th February 2020. The CMAT scores and, more importantly, the CMAT percentiles will decide whether the candidates make it or not.

CMAT Score Vs Percentile

Candidates appearing for CMAT can look forward to their CMAT scores, CMAT percentiles and all India ranks, once the CMAT 2020 results are announced. Candidates must understand the difference between the CMAT score and CMAT percentile, as these are two different concepts.

CMAT Score

The CMAT score is nothing but the total number of marks, which a candidate scores in all the four sections of the CMAT exam. The total marks of the CMAT exam is 400. The marking scheme of CMAT 2020 is as follows:

  • For every correct answer, the candidate is awarded 4 marks.
  • For each incorrect answer, the candidate loses out 1 mark.
  • For unanswered questions, no negative marking is done.

The number of marks a candidate scores in each of the four sections decides the CMAT score of the candidate.


Once the CMAT scores come out, candidates’ ranks are allotted on the basis of the CMAT score. If more than one candidate scores the same CMAT score, they will be awarded the same rank and their names will be arranged in a chronological order. The rank of the subsequent candidates will be extended by the number of additional students who have the same CMAT rank. For example, if three students have the 15th rank, then the subsequent candidate will get 18th rank.

CMAT Percentile

To calculate the CMAT Percentile of a candidate, the following things are required:

  • CMAT Rank (calculated on the basis of the CMAT Score)
  • Number of students who appeared in CMAT 2020

The formula to calculate the CMAT Percentile, as prescribed by the National Testing Agency (NTA), the conducting body, is:

Percentile= 100 x Number of candidates who appeared in the CMAT exam with raw marks equal to or less than the                                 candidate  / Total number of candidates appeared in CMAT
